    Positive environment but hard to advance one's career

    Current Employee - Sales Consultant  in  Richardson, TX
    Current Employee - Sales Consultant in Richardson, TX

    Pros

    4 weeks paid vacation, affordable great benefits, positive work environment.

    Cons

    Hard to advance to other careers within Travelers. Micro managed on how time is used. Always have to watch what is said and done because big brother is watching every move made. In the sales department, it seems that calls are routed to select individuals, while the majority receive really bad calls with less opportunity to sell and bonus. Also different tiers where top performers receive more calls than others. The playing field is not the same for all which is wrong from an ethical standpoint and decreases morale for many of the sales rep's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Half of you do not have any sales experience & the one's that do need to stop pushing us to sell on value when we are $1k higher a year. No one cares about value with the bad economical times. If we want to provide value, lets make our product affordable and stop being so greedy.

    Former Employee - Catastrophe Team Adjuster  in  Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Catastrophe Team Adjuster in Houston, TX

    Pros

    This was a great opportunity to earn good money and to learn very much about insurance, writing building damage estimates, and building construction techniques. Most of my coworkers were very helpful and friendly. The job required substantial travel so this was also a great chance to collect hotel points, airline miles, and rental car points. The training offered at this company is excellent and continual.

    Cons

    Working on an insurance catastrophe team requires long hours every day away from home for weeks (or months) at a time. It can be difficult to be away from home for so long. The job stress could be very high sometimes. Avoid this job if you're afraid of heights (or if you're unwilling to face your fear of heights). Hail storms and windstorms are common types of catastrophes so looking at roof damage is a daily job requirement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. I enjoyed my time on the catastrophe team and I felt appreciated and valued by management.
